Where To Find Sayu’s Ascension and Talent Materials

There are gems and boss loot.

Vayuda From Anemo Hypostasis and Maguu Kenki, you can get Turquoise Slivers, Fragments, Chunks, and Gemstones. After first meeting Maguu Kenki in the Golden Apple Archipelago, he is now on Inazuma.

Maguu Kenki will also drop Marionette Core, so prioritise fighting it until you get 46. Then, pay attention to the Anemo Hypostasis because it drops more Vayuda Turquoise materials.

In the Mondstadt region, the Anemo Hypostasis can be found near the Stormbearer Mountains, and the Maguu Kenki can be found near the Serpent’s Head in the Inazuma region.

Drops and Books We All Know

crystal marrow

Crystal Marrow is a special item from Inazuma that can be found mostly on Yashiori Island. It is usually found in groups of one or two rocks, so look at the bottom of cliffs and mountains.

On Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, Teachings, Guides, and Philosophies of Light can be found in the Violet Court Domain. This new Domain is on a small island west of Inazuma City. To get rewards from it, you need either 20 Original Resin or 1 Condensed Resin.

Whopperflower enemies can give you Whopperflower, Shining, and Energy Nectar. Since the Inazuma update, Whopperflower now has three parts: Pyro, Cryo, and Electro.

All of these can be found all over Teyvat, and they all drop Nectar. When you pick special flowers with a “…” prompt, you might find a Whopperflower.

Mora and the Experience Books

To fully upgrade Sayu’s talents and get her to the highest level, you’ll need a total of seven million Mora. Mora can be found in most places in the game, such as Daily Commissions, side quests, chests, and so on. The Ley Line Outcrop: Blossom of Wealth is the best place to get a lot of Mora. There are Ley Lines all over the map, and to open them, you need either 20 Original Resin or 1 Condensed Resin.

You can also get Experience Books from most things you do in the game, but the best place to get them is in the Ley Line Outcrop: Blossom of Wealth. To get Sayu to level 90, you’ll need the following number of Experience Books:

  • 414 Hero’s Wit
  • 15 Adventurer’s Experience
  • 12 Wanderer’s Advice

Keep in mind that you don’t have to use the exact number of Experience Books listed above to level up. You can use any number of them.

Rare Items Required for Sayu

azhdaha challenge

The weekly Beneath the Dragon-Queller Domain is where you can get the rare items you need for Sayu’s Gilded Scale. In this domain, you will have to fight against Azhdaha and finish the second part of Zhongli’s story. Gilded Scale is one of three items that could drop from this fight. Challenge this domain every week to make sure you get enough.

The Crown of Insight is a very rare item that can only be gotten at events that last for a limited amount of time. The Thunder Sojourn event started with the Inazuma 2.0 update. This is a rare chance to get a Crown of Insight. This item is needed for Sayu’s final talent level, so if you want to improve all of her skills, you’ll need three of them.
